Well, I had a pretty busy day today doing a variety of things away from home.  I needed some work on my hair and the place where I go is about 35 miles from my house, so it's a major time-eater when I go there.  After that I had to go to a shopping mall (I avoid malls as much as I can) to have a picture frame engraved.  It was a gift from some dear friends in honor of our little grandson, and they weren't sure of the birth date of his older brother, so only 1 of the 2 frames was engraved.  I had to wait an hour for them to do it, which was fine except it ate up a bit more of my day.  Then I had a few other stops to make as long as I was out, so in short, the whole day was spent doing things other than drawing. 

However, after dinner I went back to the little old man I've been playing with (don't tell my sweetie, please), and did a wee bit more on him.  Little by little he's beginning to emerge.  I like fussing with him, even though it's slow going.  I don't care - it seems to suit me right now! 

On another note, apropos of nothing, after being so sick back in March and April, I've lost almost all of my sense of smell!  It's very odd, to say the least.  Enough of that .... here's my little old man.

Very strong background there, and it's very bold =) It's looking good Nancy, and I sure am liking it so far

Wow girl....this guy is really coming alive! You draw so wonderfully. Slow going or not this is going to look great when he's done.

Oh, Nancy,

He is looking really good.

You were much too busy today. You'd better rest up so we can go out and play on Monday.

I like fussing over one picture, they become like old friends in the end. He's coming along great!

Oh Nancy, I hate days like that when the drawing just has to go to the bottom of the list. Seems your little old man is just the right company at the moment - there's no rush.

He's looking good already - I think it shows, the affection you feel for the character!
I hope you get your sense of smell back soon, it's often taken for granted, but it's really important!

Thanks for the welcome! We are loving your state! The balmy evenings are just fantastic...I sit outside with my iPad enjoying the breezes we don't typically have in NCthis time of year. And thanks for commenting! Hey, I've been looking for more of your "little man"...he's looking great!
